Great piece. I like the bravery. It at least amplifies the fact that we need to have a real conversation about depression.

One thing I’d add: Social media today is making us introspective to a fault.

We easily categorize ourselves under whatever disease/illness/thing just because others said so; others put up a pretty picture and you start faulting yourself.

That’s one side effect of social media.
